Abstract

There is growing interest in the development of standards which structure information round discrete clinical concepts, in a way that supports system development and interoperability. Most notable are the openEHR Archetypes and Templates, and HL7 Templates.

A project is described which explored the potential for these to engage and support clinical practitioners in developing clinical information standards in an open and accessible way.

The project followed three phases: professional development, including networking for content development; library implementation, including modelling and processes for managing content and relating to information standards; and implementation in working systems in a manner that is professionally acceptable.

The project findings are encouraging although there remain some important issues to be explored in further work. The topic has now emerged as an important area of standards development, and a useful focus for international cooperation.
